In brief: Many
Dandy walker malformation can be quite benign.
It consists of a cyst of the cerebellum due to poor development of the foramina of the fourth ventricle. Some patients are mildly ataxic and the malformation is found only incidentally on a ct scan. Some are severe in infancy and need emergency surgery with shunt to relieve pressure. Once managed, most can lead healthy long lives.L.
